It had to happen at some point. With falling returns and increased risk, the quarter after quarter growth of money flowing into hedge funds had to stop. And finally, in the fourth quarter of 2007, it did stop.
Hedge fund inflows declined by 33 percent, according to Hedge Fund Research Inc. New investment in hedge funds totaled just $30.4 billion in the final three months of the year, down from $45.2 billion in the prior quarter.
